What happens After You Apply
After you submit all the items needed to complete your freshman application for admission, the Office of Admissions will review your application in order to make your admission decision.
- Some applications are reviewed to determine whether the applicant qualifies for automatic admission under Texas law.
- Applicants who qualify for automatic admission also have their applications reviewed holistically to determine which major they will be admitted to.
- Applications from all students who are not eligible for automatic admission are reviewed holistically so that an admission decision can be made and to determine which major they will be admitted to.
While You Wait
While you wait for your admission decision, here are some things you may want to do to prepare.
Things to do while you wait
Log in to your MyStatus page using your UT EID and password.
Be sure that MyStatus indicates that your application is complete. If something you submitted doesn’t show up within a reasonable amount of time, you may want to send another copy or check with us to find out why. (Find out more about the time needed to process documents submitted by mail and fax.)
Update your Be a Longhorn profile
Many offices on campus, including admissions and housing, send periodic updates and reminders by e-mail.
Be sure to check your Be a Longhorn Profile periodically and update your contact/e-mail information whenever necessary.
Update your application
Send us information about any significant updates or changes to your application before the deadline. For instance, if you retake the SAT/ACT exam and make a higher score, be sure to send us an official copy of your latest score report by the deadline.
Your admission decision will be posted on your MyStatus page as soon as it’s made. We’ll also mail your decision to your permanent address.
